As our member community makes plans to join us for the 15th ICPA currently scheduled for June 28-July 1, 2020 in Minneapolis, MN, we want to assure our exhibitors, attendees, speakers, and partners that we are continuing to plan for the conference. Keep an eye on your inbox for up-to-date information.
The ISPA staff and Board are aware of the concerns and uncertainties related to the COVID-19 (coronavirus). Our top priority is the health, safety, and security of our members and meeting attendees. We are closely monitoring developments and staying abreast of updates from health organizations. While we are still months away from our meeting we are prepared to respond to any issues that arise and will continue to keep you informed via ispag.org/icpa and email. The safety of our community remains our highest priority and we continue to monitor the COVID-19 developments closely, following guidance from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
We have received some inquiries from exhibitors and attendees about how our plans are evolving in light of recent COVID-19 developments and we want to assure our community that we are continuing to follow national and local public health guidelines closely and implementing appropriate measures. We continue to work with all partners including the Minneapolis Marriott City Center to ensure the safety of all participants is the highest priority at the event. We will continually monitor the travel situations of exhibitors and attendees who are impacted by the travel restrictions and will work with them on options in the absence of being able to attend in 2020. Please help us stay informed of your own travel plans and your local government or institution travel restrictions by emailing us at info@ispag.org.
We will continue to provide our membership and ICPA community with regular updates. 
We intend to make a decision on whether or not to go forward with the conference no later than May 1, 2020. Given the flux in the day to day situation with COVID-19, we have revised the deadline for papers to June 1, 2020. 
The health and safety of our community is our highest priority.
